The statement of Iraqi PM’s office of public relations, published on "Sout al-Iraq" website, reads:
"Regarding the fact that many countries recognize PKK as a terrorist organization and that Iraqi constitution doesn’t allow terrorist groups to stay in Iraq, the government has decided to put an end to the presence of this movement in Iraq, to shut down all its offices and prevent it from further activities. Iraqi government will cooperate with Turkey to resolve all issues and clear the way for stronger ties."
Earlier also Mr. Maliki’s government had stated its position on the presence of terrorist MKO in Iraq, promising to expel this group from the country.
